I would understand your argument more if we learned that straight actors were turned down from the roles in this article. I just Vintage Happy Happy Joy Joy Shirt think it makes sense that gay actors, with their experiences, that they may share with the characters, have the chance to express their experiences through their acting. The point is that their sexuality reflects the experiences and culture of the characters that they play. As long as that is the case, then I don’t see the problem with it.

I hope so, I didn’t mean my original comment as an attack on gay actors, just I don’t believe anyone should be excluded from anything based on sexuality either gay or straight, it should be who does whatever it is best. They look for specific traits and personalities and abilities and looks for roles all the time. That’s part of the job. I think a good actor could play a gay role regardless of their sexuality, but a gay actor would perhaps bring more understanding and therefore more convincing acting to the part.
When they make films about slavery they don’t use white men as slaves. When they make a Bond movie they don’t use a Vintage Happy Happy Joy Joy Shirt woman as Bond. When they made Black Panther they didn’t use a white man as the lead. Get a grip man. They use black people and males for those roles because of the obvious physical differences. There are no physical differences between gay people and straight people. So if being straight was a major part of the character, I understand casting a straight actor/actress with similar experiences.
